View Full Version : Thrust-Weight Ratio for Max Speed?

What thrust-weight ratio do you need to reach max speed on a ship?

Your thrust needs to be 2x the ship weight to reach maximum speed (200).

It's important to note that ships have a hidden base thrust of 50. Don't forget to factor it in when looking for the right engine.

EDIT: As of v1.017 base thrust is now 55.

Which would mean if the ship weights 150, with the hidden base thrust of 50, you'd need about 250 thrust to hit 200 speed or so.
